  Sure it does.  For example, U+3000 (Ideographic space) is no
different from other characters that "can be the initial of global"
*and* also "can be the initial of locals".

  So the attached pictures shows a class in Japanese Hiragana
characters with space and a method name with space.

  There are many other obscure symbols and characters so you can
probably pick one.
